Friday Night CPAC


I was invited to a preview showing of Evan Sayet’s new video A Deplorable Mind along with a group of bloggers and new media folks (Stacy McCain, Pete Ingemi, Cynthia Yockey, Bill Whittle, etc.). When the PC that was supposed to handle the download of the video went into some bizarre Windows silliness mode, my Mac laptop that I’m typing this on was pressed into service.

kindergardenofedenEvan’s video is both insightful and funny. It’s due to come out on Amazon in a few days, and I’ll post a link when it does. Meanwhile, Evan’s book The KinderGarden of Eden: How the Modern Liberal Thinks is for sale. It’s insightful and funny as well—and it’s available from Amazon now.

There was good food and excellent conversation.
